Once out, turn the restrictor upside down on a hard surface and tap a couple of times. A bushing will fall out. Now drill the orifice in the restrictor out to 13/64. After drilled out, put the bushing back in and bolt it all back together.
Now, some people get nervous because @ this stage, your ram will not keep up with the speed in which you are trying to turn. A simple 10 min. pump mod will take care of the problem. Some people shim the spring inside which I have heard will burn up a pump. For this part, I used a 13/64 drill bit, drill, 17mm combination wrench, and a crescent wrench. Remove the High pressure line from the pump and then the restrictor itself. When removing the restrictor, be careful that the spring inside and the plunger do not shoot out and become lost. If you are careful, they will just sit inside when you remove the restrictor.
Hi guys, i am getting ready to put the hydro assist on my yota,. I was just wondering if its pretty much tha same procedure for the newer style boxes as well? Any feedback would be great!
Has anybody else bent their sector shaft yet? I pulled mine off to tap the pressure left line in a different spot, and there's a noticeable drag part way through the steering. I pulled out the sector shaft and it looks ever so slightly bent... It's probably only a few thousandths off, but it's enough that the shaft is a big pain to pull out, and when it's part way out and I rotate it, you can sort of see that it's not concentric with the box. I'm sure that means the bearings are failing too. I need a new box anyway for a variety of reasons, but I'm going to have to run it this way a little longer until I pick up and tap a new one.
Toyota pumps don't like power steering fluid. They like ATF. Use ATF, or they will die in 1000 miles. Ask me how I know.
